Alice is the county seat of Jim Wells County. It was established as a city in 1888. First called Bandana, then Kleberg, it was finally named Alice after the daughter of Captain Richard King, who established the King Ranch. As a result of the Texas-Mexican Railroad and the San Antonio-Aransas Pass Railroad intersecting at Alice, the community became the world's largest cattle shipping point from 1888 to 1893.

Alice is a hub of the petroleum industry, agri-business and tourism in South Texas. The lifestyle is outdoor oriented with hunting, fishing, and golfing as the main attractions.

Annual events In Alice include: Fiesta Bandana to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in May; the Jim Wells County Fair in October; Alice - "Wonderland of Lights" starting on December 3rd with a Christmas parade and lighting ceremony and lasting through the New Year.
